Summary

Description

This program prepares you to provide quality childcare in the community. You will study practice based on:

  • A child-centred focus
  • Play-based curriculum
  • Child development
  • Guidance techniques
  • Communication skills
  • Family and community relations
  • Professionalism

An emergent curriculum approach building on the interests of children, and working closely with families and communities is emphasized.

Additionally, the program is based on the study of child development within a developmental health perspective. You will learn about current, exciting research in a number of interesting areas.

Upon successful completion of the program you will be able to competently plan learning experiences that stimulate the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social development of young children.

This program provides you with practical experience working with young children at a variety of children’s centres.

Prior to starting the program, you will be invited to attend a program information session. Although optional, it is highly recommended you attend. You may also be asked to participate in an individual interview.

Who Should Enrol?

Successful completion of the ECE Diploma Program requires a high level of motivation, organization, self discipline, and strong reading and study skills. As this is a demanding program, a strong ability in reading and writing English at the 40S level is recommended.

As you must be capable of working with children for eight or more hours each day, you should be in good general health and have some prior experience with young children.

All employees of early learning and child care centres are required by law to complete criminal record and child abuse registry checks to help ensure the safety of children.

Employment Potential

Opportunities for employment have expanded as society's need for childcare increases. Currently, there is a significant shortage of trained ECEs in Manitoba. Graduates have found positions in daycare centres, nursery schools, infant care centres, family resource centres, and school-age programs. With experience and continuing education, some graduates may progress to positions of directors of children's centres.

Note: As of October 1991, diploma status is required for classification as an Early Childhood Educator Level 2. Manitoba's provincial day care regulations stipulate that two-thirds of all staff in full-time Manitoba daycare centres must be at this level.
